After less than 1% of candidates who took the test for the recruitment of junior elementary school teachers (JEST) passed, the Sindh Education Department has proposed that the teachers recruitment exam rules be eased.
Last week, 160,000 people took the JEST test, which was administered by the Institute of Business Administration (IBA) in Sukkur, the province’s capital. The percentage of students that passed was 0.78 percent.
The education department has recommended removing the 45 percent passing marks per subject norm for all applicants and decreasing overall 40 percent passing marks for female candidates, according to a proposal tabled to the Sindh cabinet.
